From the developer of Ground Control and Ground Control 2, I really shouldn't have to say anything more than that. Though now defunct, this real time strategy features one of the most unique multiplayer systems. Each player on a team plays a different role: Infantry, Armor, Air, or Support. This makes for a more cooperational multiplayer experience that you can't get in any other real time strategy, perfect for a LAN party. Much like the Ground Control series, this game has no base building and relies entirely on dropping units into supply zones and maximizing their utility.

The single player campagin is very scripted allowing for spectacular showcases of destruction. I play through it every few years. The graphical fidelity of this game crushed computers upon release and the graphics still hold up to this day. Sure to please any fan of the real time strategy genre, as a fairly hidden gem, this title would make a wonderful gift.

Here is my Review of World in Conflict

I remember picking up this game when it first came out like 4-5 years ago, I really wanted this game because this was the first modern military RTS I saw and it was actually very graphically pleasing so I knew I had to pick it up. Im glad I did, I loved this game, it was the only game I played for a number of months when I originally bought it. But I bought it again it over the Black Friday sale, I got the original game "World in Conflict" and the second installment "Soviet Assault" (Which I haven't played yet as I am writing this, but I will!). It was really one of a kind when it came out because Wargame didn't release yet and neither did Endwar so it really was a new step in RTS gaming in my opinion.

The game is set in 1989 during the fall of the Soviet Union. The game starts off with the Russians Invading American from the northwest coast and overwhelming the national guard forces and you have to push them back off the mainland, you also play in Europe and Russia which prequel the Soviet Invasion on America. You play as Captain/First Lieutenant Parker, it's one of those games where your face is never shown and you don't talk. You can command US and Nato forces in the Campaign but you can also play the Russians in Multiplayer (You can play as the Russians in Campaign with the "Soviet Assault" add on) The campagin is excellent and scripted very well.

I would say this game is a cross between Endwar, Joint Task Force and Wargame, I would say it's more like Joint Task Force and Endwar even though individual soldiers and vehicles are stock threw out the game and you cannot be upgraded but how the camera works its similar to the Endwar mechanic as well as telling units where to go, but it is actual military vehicles like JTF and Wargame but the maps are not as massive and the game is definitely less chaotic. The game is quite story based it's not really open world do whatever you want, you are kinda told what to do but the way you do an objective can vary. The Multiplayer at least in my experience is quite sparse, there is usually only 1 lobby with people and that's about it, but each lobby can have up to 16 people.

My final verdict is this game is excellent, it is definitely one of the best Military RTS's on the market if not the best, you should definitely pick this game up again if you like Wargame, Joint Task Force and Endwar.
Cheers \m/

P.S. I recommend trying this mod out, it makes all the vehicles modern, it improves the graphics and a lot more, but it does still have a few things that can be fixed but I have hope that the mod will get better. http://www.moddb.com/mods/wicmw

From the maker of the Ground Control series. World in Conflict is a real-time strategy. This game sometimes being called real-time tactics because it doesn't have base building and you just have to drop your unit to the battlefield and then attack the enemy. You will have a drop zone where you drop your units into the battlefield and unlike Ground Control, your drop zone cannot be captured by the enemy and vice versa, but the size of your drop zone can be reduced if you loose your objective point. There is also a tactical aid feature where you can call many support from small to heavy artillery barage, air support, tank buster, carpet bombing or the mighty tactical nuke WMD. The singleplayer story is quite good where you play as the US and NATO forces against the collapsing yet strong Soviet Union, beginning from the invasion of Seattle. The multiplayer very encourage teamplay as you will have specific role when you play, armor, infantry, support or air, each with its own unique unit, role and tactical aid. Very good game to be played, great graphics and gameplay, good story campaign. I recommend this.

Rating 9/10
